Ryan Stackman

We have another weekly winner to announce. He's Ryan Stackman from Pennsylvania. Ryan becomes the third weekly winner. His strategy for the week was simple (or not)--buy volatile stocks by looking at earnings and/or unusually high volume. Ryan says he one stock he picked that surprised him was Synnex Corp . He is a stockbroker by trade--so you'd have to say he's got "experience" when it comes to building a portfolio.

If Ryan wins the $1,000,000, he says he'd travel around the world, then invest for his future. His favorite sport is baseball and his favorite TV shows are CNBC's "Squawk Box" and ESPN's "Sportscenter"--in that order we trust!!

Congratulations to Ryan. His name will be removed from the leaderboard--as he is now qualified for the finals.
